Visual memory is defined as the ability to remember the characteristics of a given object or form for immediate recall. Many studies have found that children with strong visual memories excel at school level and also at later stages in remembering and understanding things. The two main forms of memory; verbal and visual memory both play important role in overall development of a child’s personality but children with powerful visual memory are at an advantage. There are various methods that you can undertake to strengthen your child’s visual memory at an early age and make them learn better and faster.
